Program description - The Orange County Environmental Protection Division is contracted with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to conduct the Storage Tank System Compliance Verification Program for facilities located in Orange, Lake, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia Counties. Program staff inspects all regulated facilities to ensure storage tanks are properly registered, installed, operated, maintained, and closed in accordance with Florida Administrative Codes 62-761 and 62-762. Types of inspections include routine compliance, tank closures and installations, discharges, and complaints. When necessary, the Program initiates enforcement actions against facilities found to be out of compliance.
The Storage Tanks Compliance Program office must be notified in writing (email) 30-45 days and 48-72 hours prior to installation and closure activities. Send an email to the Orange County Environmental Protection Division at EPD@ocfl.net. The Orange County Building Safety Division should be contacted for permit requirements for New Commercial Structure or a Commercial Alteration.
